Heart of Compassion

Hello Compassion Blog readers. My name is Aaron, and I’m a member of the marketing and media communications team at Compassion Canada.
I’ll be honest, I feel a little strange writing on a blog — I normally spend a lot of time teasing the “pajama-hadin” (Google it and thank me later).
I never thought…

Since the FAST for FOOD campaign began, some of my colleagues who have been on a coffee fast mentioned coffee every day. But the important thing is this — they honored their commitment!
Nevertheless, they eagerly counted down the days . . . I too was keen for the FAST to be over! Skipping a meal a day hurt.

Returning Grace

Story by Barb Liggett, Global Strategy Office Intern

When those with nothing are given enough, they will give back to those who have nothing. This is a foundational belief of Compassion as an organization, and nowhere does it resonate deeper than in South Korea, which is unique as a partner country because of its former status…

Love in Action

Whoa, writing my last blog post (Getting 10,000 Children Sponsored in 10 Days) has been one of the most rewarding experiences ever. One of my friends actually sponsored a child after reading the post. I’m ecstatic! It’s wonderful to know I’ve directly impacted a child’s life for good.
The thing is, I’ve always tried to avoid challenging my friends…

Compassion Sri Lanka

In addition to the expectation and excitement of registering our first child in Togo later this year, I’m very excited to say that two weeks ago our Board of Directors unanimously approved plans to begin work in Sri Lanka.
Of course, there is still much preparation that needs to be done to launch this new…

About nine years ago, when Compassion began operating in Tanzania, we were received with mixed feelings by the church.

Some thought there is no genuine organization that can offer the benefits CI claims to offer to children. Some were not comfortable that we want different evangelical denominations to come together and have a common objective in…
